Talk: Judith Kerr

18 January 2020

Talk: with David Herman

The recent death of the famous children’s writer, Judith Kerr, an old family friend, received an enormous amount of attention. Many of her best-known books have been loved by generations of young children. Tributes pointed out that she was a German Jewish refugee. What tended to be missing, though, was a careful reading of her famous autobiographical trilogy about coming to England as a refugee and what this tells us about the experience of refugees from Nazism, in particular the darker side of the refugee experience.David Herman is the son of two refugees from central Europe and has written widely on the experience and impact of Jewish refugees.
